Lesson 6: Getting your Data

Once your project has been built, you can run your project to extract your data. The project will run on our servers meaning that you can shut down ParseHub and even your device and it will continue to run in the cloud. Once the run has finished you will receive an email notification provided they haven't been disabled

Your data will be extracted to both CSV and JSON format and you can choose which format you would like to download. 

 

Similar to test running, you can access the run tool in two ways: 

1/ Accessing the run tool from "Get Data"

1. Click on the "Get Data" arrow at the bottom your project:

Your project will begin to run and let you know what stage it is currently at (how many pages have been collected so far).

When your project has finished running, you will be able to click on the "CSV" button to download the data in CSV/Excel format or the "JSON" button to download the data in JSON format. 

You can also cancel the run at any time by clicking on "Cancel Run" - the project will deliver any partial results that it has scraped so far.
